Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2006 Hummer H3 Owner Comments

Last week I was driving locally home when my H3 cab filled with smoke blocking my vision and the A/C blower stopped...I nearly drove into a tree...if I had been on the highway at speed, I would be dead. I took the car to a local shop, as close as I could get...anyway my dealer was shut down as GM went into bankruptcy. The mechanic found that a wiring harness connector burned out, creating the smoke and cutting the blower off (see photos). I reported this to GM, asking them for refund of costs and to investigate this serious safety matter. They refused because I am out of warranty! I believe they are covering up a serious manufacturing flaw...when the mechanic phoned GM for the wiring harness section involved, they had it in stock ready to go...evidently, GM knows of this flaw. If this problem is not taken seriously, someone will be killed by it! updated 08/20/09.
